The Power of Play - The Therapeutic Benefits of Play
This course has already proved incredibly popular at conferences and inset days across the UK and has been requested multiple times as a short training course in Nurseries, Schools and Out of School Settings.
The course looks at the fundamental biochemistry of play and how we can use this knowledge to help children emotionally reset, build resilience and promote positive mental health. It shows how positive play can have the most profound effect on a child’s emotional wellbeing and can help children to overcome emotional obstacles and develop confidence and self-esteem.
The course also demonstrates how we can use play to help develop secure attachments with the children in our care especially if those children are struggling with attachments outside of our setting.
The course is intensely thought provoking, combining up to date neuroscience and biochemistry with therapeutic play techniques to create a unique toolkit for helping not just vulnerable children but all children in our care. Learners will also take part in a wealth of practical activities designed to help children experience the therapeutic benefits of play and might just experience some of those benefits themselves.
